Almost 900 north-east homes were left without power following an outage last night.
According to SSE, 877 properties across nearly 50 postcodes in Bridge of Don lost
supply just before 9pm because of a cable fault in its network.
All 49 affected postcodes fell within the AB22 8 area, including Jesmond Drive, Whitestripes and parts of Balgownie Road.
In a statement during the incident SSE apologised for the issue.
The firm’s engineers managed to restore full power shortly after 10pm.
A spokesman later added: “The issue was caused by a cable fault between Jesmond and Slains Circle.
“877 customers were affected at 8.58pm. 580 were restored by 9.53pm and the remaining 297 were restored at 10.06pm.
“We’re sorry for the loss of supply.”
